is governed by the 1854 treaty between the chip with a nation and the united states -- chipewa nation and the united states government. it guaranteed that tribal nations can continue to fish, hunt and gather and otherwise use the land to support their way of life. however, in its current form this bill completely ignores the treaty rights of tribal nations. the minnesota process is moving forward in the state of minnesota includes the tribal nations. we need to make sure that the fond du lac band of lake superior chippewa, the grand portage band of lake chippewa, have their treaty obligations protected and met by the united states government. the tribal council of grand portage of chippewa has contacted my office to express their great opposition to this bill. the chairwoman of the fond du lac band of chippewa has sent letters in opposition to the governor, the secretary of agriculture, and to senators and representatives. at the appropriate time i have a copy of that letter to submit to the record. the chair: request the will be covered by general leave. ms. mccollum: thank you. minn
states senate was 30 years ago. if you compare 30 years ago, the united states between rich and poor here as opposed to countries of western europe, we were the most egalitarian of countries. now we are the least. we have outstripped everybody else because our capitalism has been relatively robust and when capitalism can do its thing, it polarizes. when it polarizes, it creates an awareness is probably also occurred to you. if a growing number of people are having a hard time in a shrinking number of people are caught an enormous wealth, it will occur to the two of them that this is happening. and in the one group, they may develop a resentment against the othegroup. and if you have a system like capitalism coexisting, not that you have to, but if you have a system of capitalism coexisting with a democratic society in which everyone has evolved, the following insight will occur to a lot of people. we, the majority are really getting schooled in the economy. the way to fix it, to reverse that, to offset is use the political system to get that result. in the political system, we can rearran
and are receiving reports this morning of the attacks against the united states embsy in cairo and the u.s. consulate in bengazi in libya. in libya, our ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in the service of our nation. our thoughts and sympathies today are with the families of these brave americans. these attacks remind us of the sacrifices made on a daily basisaway foreign service officers, diplomatic security personnel and our marine security guards. i joi my colleagues in strongly condemning the murder of these innocent americans, and i strongly support employing every available tool at our dissal to ensure t safety of americans overseas and to hunt down those responsible for these attacks. yesterday, we commemorated the anniversary of the attacks of september 11, and today we are reminded that brave americans serve us every day at the risk of their own lives. we honor the americans we lost in libya and we will stand united in our response. among the things we can agree on in washington is that the attacks on the u.s. and its representatives ll be met with r
the long-term. despite the bumpy path and the disturbing images, it's in the united states fundamental interest that people have the ability to choose their own governments, that the governments be democratic and free. that's in our long-term best interest. we need to reinforce that. >> we are in the middle of a heated presidential campaign. there are different foreign policy visions. that's why we wanted to dedicate the hour today to understand these different views. mitt romney spoke out this week, criticizing the administration, talking about whether the united states was apologizing for some of the initial response to this. these were his comments this week. >> the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in egypt instead of condemning their actions. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values. >> our embassies did not stand up for free speech in this initial response to this violence. and the republican charge is that it's weakness on the part of this administration that invites this kin

"bad me [laughter] when mitt romney turns the clock back on process, the progress, it has real consequences. women like libby bruce, who you just heard from gary or women like a 27 year-old woman whose stage to press cancer was caught at a health center and thanked god she is now cancer free.

be a movement for the united states to withdraw to fortress america, to renounce our -- our -- our service to the world in helping these countries achieve the same democracy and freedom that our forefathers strived for? i do not mean to use his death as any kind of political agenda, but i think my friend and i remember him well enough to know that the worst outcome of this tragedy wod be for the united states to withdraw. in fact, i am confident that if he were here, he would be urging us to get right back in, get -- bring these extremists to justice and press on with the democracy and freedom that the people of libya deserve and have earned at great loss of blood and treasure. mr. lieberman: mr. president, i couldn't agree more with my friend from arizona. it would -- it would really dishonor the service of chris stevens and the three other americans who served us in libya if their murders by these extremists led us to retrench and pull out of libya and stop supporting the new libyan government, democratically elecd, pull out of other parts of the arab world. that would be exactly the opp

, a justification for murdering. it's never the fault of a movie. it's never the fault of the united states. it's never the fault of western culture that people are murdered in the name of somebody else's religion. it's the responsibility and it's the fault and people to be held accountable are the ones who committed these specific acts of terror against the united states. in the past, the united states has always held and went after those responsible for this time of conduct. in 1998 when the kenyan embassy was attacked and americans were killed, we responded. of course we responded in 9/11. we responded after the first world trade center bombing. in 1996 when 19 american soldiers were murdered in saudi arabia we responded. in fact, president bill clinton said this -- the cowards who committed this murderous act must not go unpunished. we will not rest in our efforts to find who is responsible for this outrage to pursue them and to punish them. and after 9/11, president bush made this comment -- the search is under way for those who are behind these evil acts. i've directed the full resources
efforts to grow manufacturing in the united states of america. mr. speaker, i support this bill, i thank my colleagues on the other side of the aisle for their cooperation in bringing this to the floor and getting it for a vote today. i thank not only the chair and the ranking member of the full committee but the chair of the subcommittee who works with us on so many of these important issues. with that said i'll reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlewoman from california. mrs. bono mack: mr. speaker, i'd like to yield four minutes to the co-author of the legislation, very hardworking member of the subcommittee on commerce, manufacturing and trade, the gentleman from illinois, mr. kinzinger, for four minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois is recognized for four minutes. mr. kinzinger: i had -- i'd like to thank mrs. bono mack for getting this bill to the floor. it's an honor to stand here with my colleague from illinois, mr. lipinski, of this bipartisan legislation, especially at a time when americans think that
's policies. let's watch. >> this is not a case of protests directed at the united states at large or at u.s. policy. this is in response to a video that is offensive. >> chris: you don't really believe that? >> chris, absolutely i believe that. inct, it is the case. we had the evolution of the arab spring over the last many months but what sparked the recent violence was the airing on the internet of a very hateful very offensive video that has offended many people around the world. now, our strong view is that there is no excuse for violence. it is reprehensible and never justified but in fact there have been those in various parts of the world who have reacted with violence. their governments have increasingly and effectively responded and protected our facilities and condemned the violence and this outrageous response to what is an offensive individual yo video. there is no question what we have seen in the past with satanic verses and the cartoon of the prophet muhammad there have been such things that have sparked outrage and anger and this has been the proximate cause. >> chris: it
-year plan. how many of you have studied the plan? you know, in the united states and u.s. context, the entire idea of five-year plans sounds preposterous. they are taken serious in china and this one in particular is like a chain in the curve for the chinese economy. it says basically looking backwards china's successes have almost been enough low-wage factoriescome the building, road roads and all the rasputin the future under this plan they want to have more high-tech. they want infotech industry from a biotech industry coming clean take energy and aerospace industry. so the idea of the country can move from its current level of technology is something played out in this industry and a lot of others. another major theme you see about china in this field and others is the style of what i think of as the real estate centric theory of modernization. if you look for an explanation of almost anything happening in china now and say well why is the seaport go in there? why is this ancient village removed? why is x, y or z happening? real estate deals may not be the only answer, but usu
americans killed in libya arrive back in the united states. >> reporter: american forces in afghanistan's camp bastion came under fierce assault. at least two were killed before the attackers were driven off. as night fell on the mideast, anti united states protests raged for a 4th straight day. in cairo hundreds of demonstrators burned american flags and chanted anti united states slogans. the angry protests have spread to more than 30 countries, police used a water cannon in other egypt. in sudan they stormed the embassy. black smoke came from the embassy in tunsia. one by one the four americans killed in libya came home for the last time. chris stevens, shaun smith and -- they were all remembered by the president. >> they knew the danger and accepted it. think lived the american ideal. >> lawmakers were briefed on the assaults. >> this was a calculated act of terror. >> reporter: the white house is not saying there was a security l aps e. >> there was a security presence. it was unfortunately not enough. >> reporter: the president has told congress he is sending combate equippe
reauthorization makes plain that discrimination is not the policy of these united states. it says no program funded by federal vawa dollars can turn away a domestic violence victim because of their sexual orientation or their gender identity, whether the victim is gay or straight, american indian, white, black or latino, in my view, madam president, and in the view of so many in this chamber, they deserve protection from abuse and justice for their abusers. there are two other important changes in this vawa reauthorization as passed through the senate. both of which help ensure we bring perpetrators to justice no national who their victims are or where the claims are committed. these help law enforcement to secure needed testimony from victims who are unwilling to come forward due to reasonable fears of deportation. so in total, all three of these important changes to the substance and scope of vawa i think strengthen it, i think carry forward its initial spirit and i think are completely appropriate things for this senate and the house to do in our every five-year reconsideration and reauth
the united states into the longest war in our history h this is a live look at the memorial at ground zero in new york where ceremonies will be held throughout the morning. here in our area, the biggest events are happening at the pentagon. >> several top brass are due to speak including president obama. we get latest now from our own melanie alnwick live at the pentagon this morning. >> reporter: good morning, tony. president obama and the first lady are scheduled to arrive here around 9:20 this morning to honor the friends, family and colleagues of so many people here in the d.c. area killed that day. this morning, a large flag was hung outside the pentagon, the section that was hit that morning, just as it was september 12, 2001, the day after the attack of 2001 when the flag was hung. not too long ago there was a moment of silence on t lawn at the white house to market first planes hitting the world trade center at 8:46 and 9:02. it was then we realized that america was under attack! here at the pentagon the memorial service begins at 9:0. president obama will take part in a wreath-lay
are furious with the united states -- if you talk to the pakistanis, we want the opportunity, and we want that kind of social link. it would help to build ties with the united states, and put a lot more of our concentration into society where the face of society is the face of your neighbor, the engineer who works in a ditch, the face of a student, the face of your child who has come to america, etc.. our focus on what pakistan is. i am not sure that is going to be possible in the next two years, and this is my second point. i will get back to the international element in a minute. i think that it is right for us to make sure that we focus on the issue of the counterinsurgency issues that we have. we have to deal with that correctly. we have to deal with al qaeda. we have to do with international terrorism. until 2014, it is unlikely in my mind that we can have a major change. that does not mean we cannot do our hallmark. it does not mean we cannot get, for example, the dynamic, philanthropic sector of pakistan to work with the thorough -- very dynamic philanthropic sector in the states,
. >> i believe mitt romney wants to be president of all of the united states. this week we learned mitt romney wants to be president of half of the united states. if mitt romney were president, he weent waste time worrying about the 47% of americans who he believes are victims, who romney believes are unwilling to take personal responsibility and those are his words, madam president, not mine. he'll only worry about how the other half lives, i guess. that's what mitt romney told a group of wealthy donor at a closed door fundraiser in florida a month or so ago. but it turns out it wasn't closed. someone videotaped every word he said to his wealthy donors. but this is among other things what he said and this is a quote. "there are 47% who are dependent upon government, who believe that they're victims, who believe that government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, you name it." mitt romney said his job as president would not be to, "worry about those people." but half of americans are those people. he went on to sa

[cheers and applause] democrats believe in reigniting the american dream by removing barriers to success and building ladders of opportunity for all. so that everyone can succeed. jobs are central to the american dream, and president obama focused on jobs from day one. [cheers and applause] under president obama, we have gone from losing 800,000 jobs a month to adding 4.5 million private sector jobs over the last 29 months. [ applause ] the american dream is about freedom. jobs mean freedom for workers to support their families. working with president obama, democrats passed the lily led better fair pay act to strengthen rights of women in the workplace. we repealed don't ask, don't tell so our troops can serve the country they love, regardless of whom they love. we made college more affordable. house democrats passed the dream act but senate republicans blocked it.

laden did. he had this exhaustion attrition strategy when it came to the united states and the west. he has continued that to a certain extent. he has very much switched the inus to building affiliate's other countries and to increase the strength of al qaeda in africa, the middle east, and elsewhere. the has been very successful at it. here is the one thing about him that has me on a knife's edge. if he were really smart, he would never attack the united states again. it led to such a disaster for them after 9/11 for the first few years. it really set back a lot of division that bin laden had and then you had to spend your time convincing as it was not worth your while. if he was smart, we would go back to sleep like we were in the 1990's and you could go out and create whenever you wanted to and we would not pay attention unless americans got killed. i do not know if he's that smart or that patient. i believe he is a man is controlled by a desire for revenge for the death of his wife, the death of his son, and for the torture he underwent in prison. he may not be able to control his a
. it is the overtime that jews as a class have been expelled from anywhere in the united states. and around 1982, new information concerning the order had he come available from the association that published ulysses s. grant's papers. and so i began to prepare my remarks i put on the new suit and my talk seemed to be going well until i approached the subject of smuggling. ulysses s. grant was completely concerned about the north and the south. and since some of the smugglers that these troops caught were jews, he concluded that all jews or smugglers. that pointed out that we now know that smuggling was rampant was by no means a jewish monopoly. the continued rants own father, jesse grant was engaged in a clandestine scheme to move southern cotton northway. his partner was a jewish clothing manufacture and send them back. no sterner with those words out of my mouth and began to shift uneasily in the room and the pioneering of the american jewish historian buried his face in his hands. it was out of this world. i said something went terribly wrong. so the archives i didn't know what the problem was. s
do they talk about the united states and how do they talk about the union and the confederacy. how do they talk about the south that it would substantially different from each other and voila i would have something to say so i headed off into the archives. >> first of all but archives? >> archive server every state that fought in the war in this book. some are the huge ones that immediately come to mind the library of congress or carlisle barracks in pennsylvania which has an enormous army history collection but also smaller libraries state historical associations, the alabama department of the agriculture the vermont historical society in independence misery and again the point was i didn't want to read more about u.s. grant i wanted to be about the back of the line so that's why i looked for him. i look at the flag and i think of my farm or my wife and mother they didn't cooperate and do what i wanted them to do and i was frustrated with them for that reason petraeus too were you find a similar thing before the union and confederate soldiers? >> two things. i knew the union and conf
, the national security and job protection bill would require that the president of the united states submit to congress a legislative proposal to replace e sequester with an alternative no no ter than october 15 of this year. up until this point we have seen absolutely no leadership, no plan to fix this sequester problem. but yet there's strong bipartisan agreement that the sequester, as it is right now, is bad policy and should be reprioritized. once again, the president has failed to lead in this area, failed to put forward a credible response, failed to put together a legislative proposal and the senate has failed as well. the result is that less than 100 days we will see reductions that our very own secretary patta will hallow out our armed forces and make arbitrary, totally arbitrar reductions in other spending programs. not only has the president failedo lead in this area, he's failed to put forward a plan, but the president has also failed -- and this is important -- to submit to congress a report as law requires him to do so detailing specifically how this administration would imple
of this country, we had a president of the united states who wrote a book about congress without ever visiting congress itself. who said what the founding fathers realize, and which their effort to have vertical separation of power between state and national government, what we call federalism and horizontal separation of powers between the three branch, which we call the separation of powers and every public school student is taught that, they were put in there so that individual liberty, which i always say is individual choices in running their life, would be protected against the concentration of pow for the one branch or another. this former president of the united states called this separation of powers political witchcraft. he said it was wrong to try and separate powers, perplexingly subdivided and distributed to to be hunted down in far away corners. this president said, the president should speak for the government this other president coming back later increased the role and power of the executive branch under the concept the president is the president of the whole people and therefo

people. because the senate bill was inclusive and every woman member , republican, of the united states senate voted for it. everyone. that was the difference between the two bills. those who were included and a more specific group that are now included, which we think they ought to be, but we also think there aren't people include who had need to be. with all due respect i think my characterization was absolutely accurate. but it's interesting, mr. speaker, that we still haven't eabed the question -- answered the question. we tend to want to talk about other things. 98% of americans should not get a tax increase on january 1 that are making less than $250,000 individually as a family. i think we agree on that. mr. speaker, now i haven't heard that we don't agree on that but we agree on that which means there are 2% on which we do not agree. and that bill has not been brought to the floor that passed the united states senate dealing with that 98%. or 97% of small business. now, mr. speaker, it seems to me if we have agreement on 98% and the president of the united states will sign that
the united states in the wake of that antimuslim film. take a look at this map. you can see just how widespread the protests are. even though many have been violent, there were also several peaceful protests in many countries. and the violent protests were actually a lot smaller than some may have expected. now, many americans just really don't understand why these protests are breaking out across the world. joining me in studio now to help break it down, michael han lan, specialist in foreign policy. good morning, michael. thank you for coming in. >> my pleasure. >> i have to say, the first question i have when these protests first started breaking out, seemed to be a very serious situation. then as they continue to go on and be a little bit sporadic, i wonder how much is authentic, related to the film, how much of it is just an excuse to protest america? >> i think it's a great question. it's also very important you emphasize correctly, but in a way a lot of people haven't, these protests are generally small. a number of them are nonviolent. today it's already midday sunday and mos
